PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia Flyers have acquired defenseman Nicklas Grossman from the Dallas Stars in exchange for a 2012 second-round pick and a 2013 third-round pick.

The Flyers announced the trade before Thursday's game against Buffalo. Grossman, a 6-foot-4, 230-pound defenseman, has five assists in 52 games this season. He has three goals and 41 points in 333 career NHL games.

Grossman is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
